Golden-brown. I've had burnt black marshmallows a couple times before, they're not fun to eat.

I snickered. Put a Disney character in it with the "all Disney characters do a pose like this" pic on the book and that might send me over.

Because nobody wants to see that shuff, yo.

Why can't I find Gilligan's Planet when I search the skies in Stellarium?

I always digged the little map similarities you could find in Super Metroid. While Maridia was long and confusing and claustrophobic to me, I also loved every moment of it. It just gives off such an alien, oppressive feeling the first time you're in it proper. And it continues to do so as it's not exactly the easiest area to navigate.

I always wondered if parts of Norfair in Super Metroid were similar to Norfair areas in the original game, but never had the time to compare and verify.

Dude, I do that EVERY day.

Except replace fantasy baseball with furry stuff and replace Twitter with TVTropes.

It's not the lions you have to watch out for, it's the Barbary apes. When cornered they can get really vicious.

Looks like a game worth checking out.

It's a fact of life that you lose to it... and lose to the awesomeness. I sure did. In fact, just post clips from Bollywood films from now on.

What the heck is this?  It's one thing to have Samus show emotion, but for her to be so terrified of someone whose @$$ she's kicked on multiple occasions is ridiculous.

It's Ridley. I wouldn't be thinking about Samus being afraid or Samus thinking he was destroyed last time. Ridley just by himself makes me hesitant to open that one door that leads to his lair. He may not be the final boss of any Metroid game, but he's the most prominent, one of the most well-known, in most cases probably thought of as the real final boss.

Ridley deserves all the hoopla and elaborate setups that make him out to be some legendary beast. Unlike Bowser who half the time is a joke (pals with Mario or a brute who's goofy or can't be taken seriously), Ridley is who Bowser used to be: a legitimate threat, someone who's very rewarding to defeat. Except for his pitiful self in Metroid Zero Mission, but I pretend he didn't exist there.

Instead of the purple add-ons to the Varia Suit, the lights on the chest will now glow purple to indicate that the Gravity upgrade is in effect.

Ugh. You know, there was nothing wrong with purple. Back in Super Metroid, what with the generally dark colors used, purple was quite refreshing and looked cool. Make it dark blue if you have to. I guess purple lights are better than nothing, but it's still a shame to not have that famous look around in full. On the other hand, it might make sense to keep Samus orange so she has an easier time standing out from her surroundings.

Not at the Dinner Table / Re: Nevada considers legalizing pronunciation
« on: August 24, 2010, 11:42:31 PM »
Are there really people from Nevada who get annoyed when mispronouncing the name of the state (by the way, I say it neh-va-dah instead of neh-vah-dah)? Isn't there something more important they could be focusing on? Why do you need to pass legislation on how to pronounce something?

It's stupid, it's of next to no consequence, and this isn't even a situation where a mispronunciation would make something sound naughty. Why does anyone care about this?

Better to spend your time complaining about how Michael Rosen pronounces "tomato".

Burnout 3. It was taking so long to get to the intro screen, I concluded the game CD was broken and sent it back.

Turok: Evolution. Everything takes a long time to load. Intro screens should never take any time to load, since you'll only be on an intro screen for a few seconds.

Half-Life 2, naturally. But also because the default behavior at startup is to load some complex pretty-looking scene for the intro background. Give me a break, I'll only be on that intro for a few seconds.

Quake. Say no more.

Metroid Prime. That door's never gonna open when you need it to.
